The College expects all students to take responsibility for their actions and be willing to accept the consequences of their behavior. College regulations have been designed to protect the rights of all members of the community and to ensure the integrity of the institution. The Emmanuel College Student Conduct System is intended to aid the individual student in developing self-discipline and a sense of responsibility and community membership. Collective work and responsibility are possible only as long as students, faculty and administrators feel confident that rules will be enforced for the benefit of the entire Emmanuel community. When infractions of specific academic or social regulations occur, the cases will be heard at the appropriate level, either by a College official, an Ad Hoc Hearing Board, the Academic Review Board or the Academic Integrity Committee.
